Ohio to Florida

Post by 70Chally » Sun Feb 28, 2016 7:56 pm

I moved to Florida from Ohio a few months back and now have a Florida and Ohio CWL. My Ohio license expires in a few months so my question is this, do I let it expire or renew as a non resident? If I renew as a non resident what's the cost, procedure and benifits.
Thanks in advance.

You cannot renew an Ohio license as a non-resident unless you are employed in Ohio. Seems unlikely since you live in Florida, but if you do, you just fill out the application as a non-resident, provide proof of employment in Ohio, and pay the fee.

True - I could envision flying in to Ohio on Monday, staying through Friday then flying home for the weekend. I've known people to do things like that, but it takes a pretty high-paying job, and the willingness to be away from home for most of the week.

Right.
I have known people who do that but for me home and family are first. Futunately I only need to travel back for a day 4-5 times a year. Fly in and fly out.
